You’ll demonstrate to us that you have:

  • Significant experience managing a Release Function or deployment project in a demanding and complex environment
  • Experience of working with complex multi system, multi-site environments with third parties
  • Ability to manage multiple stakeholders and to communicate  clearly with a range of people at different levels of the organisation, including the ability to liaise, explain and discuss complex issues using a range of tools, styles and techniques
  • Knowledge and experience of Service Management good practice (ITIL), particularly Release Management – especially change control and governance
  • Demonstrable ability to plan, prioritise and co-ordinate own and team activities

In return, allpay offers a competitive salary, a range of additional benefits, including 25 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays every year.
